Diversify your sources of financing

Benefit from our co-investment model

What is a co-investor?

A Co-Investor is a person, or a group of persons (business angels or venture capitalists), who invest a substantial amount in the company.

The co-investment principle

At Spreds we believe that your sources of financing should be well balanced, this is why we opted for a co-investment model. All campaigns on Spreds are financed by both a community of investors and what we call “lead investors”: one or more large tickets, which can range from 30% to 70% of the total round.

With co-investment, the crowd benefits from the same conditions as the lead investor, ensuring fairness. Entrepreneurs can benefit from specialised venture capital experience and expertise and potentially gain a board member.
